When the first cool breeze after summer hits us, we let out a large sigh of relief that summer almost is over and then get giddy with anticipation that fall is almost here. During the autumn season, the bright colors of summer are taken over by a palette or deeper, richer colors that make this time of year special. The warm brownish reds, vibrant oranges, golden yellows, and deep plums take over the landscape and create a world of wonder and awe.
Here at Rose Hill Florist, we love working with the jewel-toned colors of fall flowers. Below is a list of our favorite fall flowers in the enchanting hues and textures this awesome season produces.
